Her stans are the largest group of stans here, so she probably gets the most scrutiny.

I think people are unfair towards Mariah because of her diva behavior and antics.

that thread is very open, warm and welcoming for anyone who may have a request or question regarding Mariah. If people wouldn't spin this myth further of how the people in the thread are "weird", hostile or other everyone would benefit from a more normalized situation between ukmix and the lambs.

It's hard to have a conversation there though - there are so many users and a lot of them spam that thread with loads of bulls**t that belongs to other threads.

Honestly I don't think people are just "pressed" about Mariah, unfortunately and as hard as it sounds she seems to be genuinly hated by masses. Beign pressed =/= Real hate.

There is a difference between having people pressed and having people hating on you and Mariah is in the later, people hate her because of her antics and (recent fiascos) , there are people who are genuinly hated and despised by a big portion of people (Mariah Carey, Donald Trump, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, etc).

What kind of fiascos are people so pressed about?

Her having an off performance 2 years ago and then giving her best one year later?

The fact that her voice has changed, which is not in her control?

Morgan Carey's accusations that she helped her sister in the past, but refuses to do so today?

That she has a borderline disorder?

That James Packer mistreated her assisstant and she cancelled the relationship?

The fact that she has a christmas song which is loved?

The fact that she performed for 3,500 people in Zurich, Switzerland (2016)?

The fact that she says "Darling" after every sentence?

The fact that she is schooling the young pop-girls who shade her and to whom she said that they should introduce themselves to her and then give their opinion about her... artistry and behaviour?

The fact that she sometimes performs with sunglasses on (indoors)?

The fact that she pays for her fans cancer treatments?

The fact that she meets fans from all over the world and remembers their names? (Graham Norton show, 2003)?

The fact that she gains and loses weight?

The fact that she likes to give interviews while not sitting up straight?

The fact that she performed in Israel 2 years ago?

Mariah is vilified and hated, but at the same time revered which is weird.

Lumping Donald Trump in with the three musicians is something really quite special.

People don‘t actually ‘hate‘ Mariah though, at least not to the same extent as they hate Trump, Bieber and Kanye. Most just don‘t know her, don’t care about her or see her as a laughing stock.

Yeah i'd say people are indifferent towards Mariah rather than hate her. Out of the big 5, Janet and Madonna received the most hate. Janet got a lot of hate during SP controversy. Madonna is hated 7/24 by media, other diva fans and religious people. I don't think anyone hates Mariah apart from a few online music fans.

I don't think people hate Janet . . . I think people are just indifferent towards her, some others may not even remember her at all.

Madonna and Mariah are the most mainstream on media tho and they both get hate and criticism, the difference is that Madonna just seems to provoke people Mariah is just simply hated. :lol:

The media doesn't hate Madonna.

I'd say both her and Mariah are about par in terms of how the public thinks of them.

In terms of Mariah... I don’t think it’s thst people dislike her, they’re just in different to her. If I’m being honest I don’t think the general public at large consider her a legend or iconic. Certainly is not in the UK anyway. But she was never huge here in the way she was in the US - we seemed to prefer Celine and Whitney.
